National Network for State Teachers of the Year: Dr. Hamilton

Dr. Hamilton is now part of an elite crowd.  She is a lifetime member of a national organization known as the   National Network of State Teachers of the Year (NNSTOY). Dr. Hamilton will be invited to accept leadership roles to change and influence educational policies at the national and state level.  She will always be a Finalist for Illinois Teacher of the Year.  She will be attending the NNSTOY Conference in Washington, DC this summer along with all the former and current teacher of the year finalists.  We are so proud to have her not only represent Whiteside School District, but also the entire state of Illinois.

It was so inspiring to be with Dr. Hamilton and all the finalists at the Those Who Excel Awards Dinner in Bloomington, Illinois.  Their stories were uplifting and reinforced our collective belief that teachers change lives. 

Thanks to the Whiteside Fan Club for attending this special event.  The other finalists were in awe of Dr. Hamilton's support at the ceremony. 

Enjoy the photo above of Dr. Hamilton with the 2016 Illinois Teacher of the Year Finalists.

Congratulations, Dr. Hamilton!
